Less than eight weeks until the 2018 version of Houses in Bloom opens!
We invite everyone to visit our newest exhibit to see how electricity moved into rural areas of Marathon County in the 1930s and '40s, and how life changed when it did.
Our topics for 2018 range from milk to medicine, from the Packers to ancient rock art, and lots more. Here's our full list. Mark your calendar now and plan to attend as many as you can!
We had a great time on Saturday, December 2, at our Christmas at the Houses event!
Our quilt exhibit is now closed, However, we have created a PowerPoint slide program with photos of the quilts and their makers, and would be happy to schedule a presentation for your group!
So much fun and such a great crowd at this program by artist, curator and musician Michael Cepress on November 18 at the Woodson History Center! Check our gift shop for more of his hand-dyed fiber art!
